Bryan Cranston Addresses Rumors That He'll Play 'Lex Luthor' In BATMAN/SUPERMAN
After a series of reports from an incredibly unreliable source that somehow spread across the internet to sites like 'Rolling Stone' and 'E! News', Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston laughs off those rumours and scoffs at claims that he's signed a six picture deal. Check it out!
Anyone with even the tiniest bit of common sense knows that Cosmic Book News is a joke of a website, well-known for starting false rumours. Unfortunately, that didn't include a number of far more reliable sites who would embarrassingly pick up on their story that Bryan Cranston had been cast as 'Lex Luthor' by Warner Bros. for 2015's Batman/Superman movie. Talking to The Boston Globe recently, the Argo and Drive star had this to say about those reports. "I’ve heard that too. Six? This is all news to me. I think that maybe my name is bandied about because I’m known to be bald. ‘What bald guy can we get?’ The reality is they can take any actor and shave his head or put a bald cap on him." However, when asked whether he would turn to Gene Hackman for advice if he were to get the role, the actor laughed and said, "I can just see how that phone call would go. ‘Gene? Hi, this is Bryan Cranston.’ ‘Who? Bryan Cranston? What do you want? How did you get this number?’ " Finally, he added that his schedule is now pretty much free for the rest of the year, and while there are some projects are on the horizon, nothing is set in stone as of yet. Whether that includes Batman/Superman is unknown, but for now, it appears as if he isn't Lex Luthor. "I think I’ll relax the rest of the year. There’s some irons in the fire, things that people are talking about, but nothing is set." Stay tuned to CBM for updates!
